    The Real “Two State Solution”: Eliminate Hamas

    The Trump administration should provide strong, unequivocal support for the Palestinian people in conquering their most deadly enemy. No, that's not the Israelis. It's the gang of murderous thugs known as Hamas, the brutal Islamist fanatics who rule over Gaza. Hamas rejects all calls for negotiation, embraces terrorist violence as…

    Housing Construction vs. Human Destruction

    The worst part of the new Obama-Kerry Middle Eastern initiative isn't that it punishes the Israelis—it's that it rewards the Palestinians by endorsing their false narrative, identifying Israeli communities in disputed territories as the chief obstacle to peace.

  • Pruitt and Puzder: A pair of brilliant nominees

    With two nominations late last week, President-elect Trump has telegraphed seriousness about a frontal assault on the out-of-control regulatory state. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is a brilliant, principled, amiable and effective chief legal officer of a state and former state legislator (as well as minor league baseball team owner).…

  • Is Donald Trump a Misogynist?

    You have to marvel at the ease with which our fellow Americans who call themselves progressive label those with whom they differ as sexist, intolerant, xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist and bigoted. I always wonder: Do they believe it? Or do they say it because they lack intellectual arguments? I have…
